Janet Jackson received cheers as she thanked fans for their support.

Photo: APMICHAEL JACKSON was a pitiful 51.5 kilograms when he died, his emaciated body riddled with needle-marks, the trademark black locks reduced to "peach fuzz", pathologists have revealed.The distressing state of the star's body, described in the autopsy report leaked to the London Sun newspaper, showed that the singer died anorexic, his stomach filled only with partially dissolved pills taken before the last injection of pain killer that may have stopped his heart.According to pathologists, Jackson was surviving on one meal a day and a regime of painkilling injections, believed to be pethidine, which were administered three times a day.A mass of surgery scars, the legacy of at least 13 cosmetic operations, covered his body, and a scarred section of skin above his left ear was entirely devoid of hair after he was burned during filming of a Pepsi commercial in 1984.

The bridge of his nose had vanished and the right side had collapsed.He was wearing a wig when he died, and little more than "peach fuzz" was left of the afro that was his trademark as a child - or the glossy straightened long hair he sported as an adult.The British tabloid has also said that the cardiologist, Conrad Murray, was only hired as Jackson's personal physician two weeks ago by AEG Live, the company that was behind the proposed 50-concert comeback series at London's O2 Arena.In Los Angeles cheers greeted Janet Jackson when she appeared on the stage of the Shrine Auditorium at the end of the Black Entertainment Television Awards, but her face was etched with pain.

For several moments her mouth quivered, and it looked as if she might be unable to speak."My entire family wanted to be here tonight, but it was just too painful, so they elected me to speak for all of us," she said.The award ceremony, which had been scheduled to honour athletes, musicians and actors, was transformed to a hastily organised celebration of Jackson and his music.The ceremony was largely joyous and celebratory, but the mood changed when Janet Jackson came on stage."To you Michael is an icon, but to us Michael is family, and he will forever live in all of our hearts.

On behalf of my family and myself, thank you for all of your love, and thank you for all of your support.

We miss him so much."When the show began, the host Jamie Foxx shouted wasted no time in kicking off the Jackson-flavoured festivities.

"There's no need to be sad," Foxx shouted, wearing a single glove and a red leather jacket similar to the one Jackson wore in his Beat It video.Watching from the audience was Jackson's father, Joe, who sat in the front row next to the Reverend Al Sharpton.

The elder Jackson ignited a frenzy when he appeared near the red carpet minutes before the broadcast.The 79-year-old patriarch introduced an unidentified man who appeared to be a business partner.

"Marshall and I have - we own a record company.

Talking about Blu-ray technology.

That's the next step," Jackson snr said.The internet was instantly buzzing with outrage at the apparent commercial plug at his first appearance since his son's death.with Los Angeles Times and Agence France-Presse
